    Liposuction cost

    Liposuction cost

    Liposuction cost may vary depending on multiple factors like: the number and surface of areas treated and every hospital or center offers their own price lists, which makes it difficult for cosmetic surgery patients to compare given prices for a particular medical treatment in Spain.

    Liposuction cost can be better apprehended if we take into account some of the following factors…

    1- Getting to define liposuction:

    Liposuction, also known as liposculpture is a surgical technique that aims to remove fat localized in some specific body areas like the abdomen, outer and inner thighs, buttocks, knees…

    The fat suctioned by the cosmetic surgeon is always measured in volume (c.c.), never in pounds since the aim of the surgery is to reshape a particular body area and is in no way a weight-loss procedure.

    The surgeon will usually remove 2 to 5 liters of fat and, when the estimated volume of fat to be suctioned is too high, liposuction is split into two different plastic surgeries.

    The length of the hospital stay is also determined by the surgeon taking into account the quantity of fat removed: stays range from 1-2 hours to up to 1-2 days for surgeries performed under general anesthesia.

    Liposuction price can also vary depending on the number and localization of areas treated and on the technique used during the surgery.

    The Cosmetic Surgery Department at Vithas Xanit International Hospital offers the traditional liposculpture technique (liposuction).

    Liposuction cost

    During the liposuction, 2 to 5mm mini invasive incisions are made by the cosmetic surgeon in the area to introduce the cannula below the skin so as to suction the fat cells located either in the superficial or deeper skin layers.
    Liposculpture can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the area that needs be treated.

    Some surgeries last longer than others:
    -an outer thighs liposuction usually lasts about 1 hour,
    -an abdominal liposuction or inner thighs liposuction usually lasts about 2 hours and,
    -a knee liposuction lasts about 30 minutes

    The targeted liposuction for “small areas” are considered as ambulatory procedures and, when the suctioned volume is higher or when the surgery is carried out under general anesthesia, a one night stay really is necessary.

    Expected results of a liposuction or a liposclupture show about 1 month after surgery and final results about 1 year after surgery has been performed.

    Perfect liposuction procedures show permanent results though they depend too on the lifestyle and habits of these patients.

    Approximate price for liposuction procedures per body area:
    Small liposuction (less than 1 hour duration): 1.680 €
    Localized liposuction (1 to 2 hours duration): 2.900 €
    Medium liposuction (2 to 3 hours duration): 3.500 €
    Large liposuction (over 3 hours duration): 3.900 €
